that would keep you from really soaring. nonetheless, i still think that friday, as this cold front approaches, we're gonna scour out the clouds and get a few hours of sunshine in here to really make those temperatures soar. tomorrow's not halved about either, coming out of the 40s going into the 50s and into the 60s. look at the pockets of warm weather. all right, from nashua and again through lawrence, back down into norwood, and then maybe a spike to 70 degrees and then a cool-down as we go through the afternoon. it's neat to see how it progresses, isn't it, with numbers changing. near record highs on friday. boston i'm predicting now about 75 degrees. should snap our old record set back in 1915 and in previous years, and in worcester, 71, set back in 1978. clear start, a few clouds late, 42 to 52. and then tomorrow we get close possible. and you might get another one on friday late if you're headed out and want to enjoy the evening, just a quick shower.
